BOOK REVIEW

     THE DETECTIVE AND THE INVESTOR - ROBERT HAGSTROM

Robert Hagstrom, author of the Warren Buffet Way, wrote this book to show how techniques and mental skills used by famous sleuths, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes; Edgar Allan Poe's Auguste Dupin; and G. K. Chesterton's Father Brown are very similar to the ones of a good investor.  For instance, both of them gather information from a variety of sources, study and analyze the data, discard irrelevant facts and come to the right conclusion. Hagstrom provides several examples and points out how their techniques would apply to Wall Street.

Whether you are a mystery book fan or have an interest in investing, you will find this book quite interesting, entertaining, and enjoyable.  It is intriguing to see how Robert Hagstom can take the skills of these detectives and actually apply them to today's investor.  This book is very well written and quite readable.
